As I’ve been trying to go straight for my goals those last few days, I had a realization: The word “direction” comes from “direct”, meaning “straight to the point”.
If you wanna go anywhere, move directly towards it. We were wise enough to code it in our language.
And if you think about it, directness is also a synonym for honesty. To be direct is to be honest to yourself about what you want and have to do.
Of course, there’s a flip side to directness. It can be intense which takes a toll on your health.
Results are rarely about intensity. Especially for me, who has a migraine fuse to keep my brain cool. Results are about persistence and directness. Being persistently direct about what I want to achieve.
I’ll let time do its thing, while my migraine reminds me when I’m being intense instead of direct.
